Hi Foamers,
I have a doubt about laplacian and divergence. For many problems we write div(nu, grad(T)) simply as laplacian(nu, T).
For my application i need to write div(tensor), Which gives a vector field. But i am getting some error message as follows.

tmp<fvVectorMatrix> UEqn
fvm::div(phi, U)
- fvc::div(2*nu*pow(1-T/0.68,-1.82), symm(grad(U)))

UEqn.H:7:62: error: no matching function for call to ‘div(Foam::tmp<Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> >, Foam::tmp<Foam::GeometricField<Foam::SymmTensor<do uble>, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> >)’
make: *** [Make/linuxGccDPOpt/sbm1Foam.o] Error 1

where symm(grad(U)) is rate of strain tensor.(1/2*(grad(U)+grad(U).T)).

please guide me to rectify this problem..
